Abstract Driving power trucks and lifting equipment is restricted to workers having received suitable training. For some types of equipment that present specific hazards, drivers are furthermore required to hold a qualification delivered by the employer. This information sheet presents the CACES (French acronym for safe driving aptitude certificate), which is a good means of ensuring that drivers possess the necessary know-how and skills prior to being authorized to drive.
